Samsung SGH-A177 (AT&T) review

 

In case you haven't noticed, messaging phones are in. Once the domain of high-end smartphones, full alphabetic keyboards have trickled down over the past year into a broad variety of basic, midrange handsets. These messaging phones are built primarily...

The Samsung SGH-A177 offers a simple design with a comfortable keyboard. Its practical feature set centers on texting.

The Samsung SGH-A177's call volume is low. Speakerphone quality is unimpressive.

If you can live with its variable call quality, the Samsung SGH-A177 is a functional and easy-to-use texting phone. It's affordable and it doesn't require a contract.

Meh

 

A real "meh" phone. Got this for free after my A687 (Strive) broke, and it was QUITE the downgrade. Saved a little and got a Nokia E5 since then, and haven't looked back.

Has a keyboard

It's simply not good at anything. Call quality isn't good, image quality isn't good, no expandable memory, nothing particularly stand-out about its features. Not particularly durable, not particularly good-looking

SAMSUNG SGH-a177 Black Unlocked GSM Bar Phone with Full QWERTY Keyboard

 

Overall decent phone. camera sucks but whatever.

Decent phone seems durable, no real problems

keyboard is a little difficult to use. the keys are very close together and when text messaging if one key is hit while another is down the first key hit will not compute which makes fast text messaging a little difficult

Bad Santa

 

Bought this for my son for Christmas, tested it before wrapping it up and it worked fine for texting. Made a call from my phone and it rang. The boy was very Happy when he opened it up, Then

Then I called him on the phone and I couldn't hear him talk when he held it in the normal fashion for talking on the phone. Vey unhappy to get a broken phone for a Christmas gift I gave to my son. Totally sucks... I will let you know how it goes trying...

Good product

 

Learning curve not too bad on using QWERTY input. There are shift and function keys for changing a button's input. You will need a data plan (on top of talk/text) to utilize web browsing and e-mail.

Sleek, very thin. QWERTY style input. Speakerphone. Camera. Web browsing and e-mail. Calendar, task reminder, etc

Mine came with the display covering (thin plastic layer covering main display) detached at one corner. That is to say one corner of the display covering keeps popping up and I can't seem to click it down. This is not a flaw with the product just the...
